Just finished replacing just about everything including a new rear end. It still runs great as long as you are going forward. Heard about several recalls on various parts including something to do with the transmission... could this be the problem or more than likely new transmission?
Engine light been in since I purchased the car, had it checked several times keep saying gas ca replaced the cap twice
is there access to a place that I can disengage the pedal like in a manual release type of car,
I purchased this vehicle a couple months ago. I've never owned a Lincoln before. But I definitely bought a lemon with this one, as it was in the shop 3 times within the first or second week of buying it. It's now been in the shop a total of FIVE times! Now I have a dead battery, & when I go to turn the heat on (if I'm even doing so correctly, cold air blows out! I just can't win with this one! I don't even know if I'm turning the heat on correctly, as this A/C/Heating System is unlike any I've ever seen!!! There honestly could be absolutely NOTHING wrong with the heat except for the fact that the person operating the vehicle (me!), has no clue what they're doing!!!!!
My mom gave me the car. She had some backyard mechanic replace the ignition a year ago. Since then, it has been having problems. It won't start some days, after sitting for a day then it will start. It wont start sometimes and you have to wait for the security light to shut off then it starts. Last time it died for them, the dome light was flickering and the windows wouldn't roll down. It has only done this a few times to them. I was driving it to work, went to roll the window down and the car just died. It turns over and sounds like it wants to start but wont. My mom thinks it has to do with the guy who replaced the ignition. ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!

Discovered a dark black fluid leaking onto my garage floor. I brought the car into the shop and they stated there potentially are two leaks (Transfer Case seal & rear engine seal). Stated they would need to remove the transmission to fix the leaks, estimated cost $1200. Does this cost seem appropriate?
electric seat was having trouble going back and forth to adjust, slow. removed seat, checked everything, replaced. Now the seat works, but going forward, nearing the end, it veers to the right into the console. any ideas?
I have removed everything else but I've seen nothing online that tells me the best way to do this and I don't want to break it or the housing around it.
On start up everything works fine but when the engine reaches normal temperature the fans kick in to high speed and remains running at high speed but temperature is rock steady. The fan runs on after the ignition is turned of for about 2 to 3 minutes.Could this be one of the sensors or the sensor in the thermostat housing. Can I check the sensors with a multimeter and if so is there a specific resistance value they should measure.
Thanks Michael.
truck ran almost perfect for 4 or5 k miles then noticed a little hesitation on the road between45 and 65 like it was not getting enough gas. also noticed the oil pump gauge not working all of the time. Started sounding like it was hot and like a diesel with valves clattering. Did,nt know if it would go dead at red lights or not but did;nt Don,t want to burn it up if it is oil pump. Want to be sure what it is before I start guessing.what parts to change.Will some synthetic oil help to keep it going for now?
When I try to put it down there is a fairly loud click from where the relays are in the trunk. When i push the button the other way, there is a slight click but much softer and it seems to come from same spot. Quarter windows work fine.
